David Ayer Says His Director’s Cut of SUICIDE SQUAD Is “Coming” and That “Something’s Going to Be Revealed” — GeekTyrant


David Ayer is feeling very hopeful and confident that his director’s cut of Suicide Squad is actually going to see the light of day. The filmmaker has been talking about his original cut of Suicide Squad for years and how it was “ripped to pieces” by the studio.

During a recent interview with Total Film, the Ayer was once again asked about his original cut of Suicide Squad and if it will be released and he believes that it will see the light of day at some point. He said:

“I think so. I’m going to be hopeful. You know, there are a lot of people that are invested in certain narratives that don’t want it to see the light of day. So there’s an immense political headwind against it, because if that cut were made public, the cowardliness and the whole just general shittiness of how the film’s been treated, and how the actors have had this great work that they’d done taken away… That narrative blows up once people see the movie. But it’s coming. Something’s going to happen. Something’s going to be revealed. The truth always comes out. It always comes out.” 

Ayer previously revealed that Suicide Squad was his biggest Hollywood heartbreak, he went on to explain that Suicide Squad broke him, saying: “Hollywood — I tell people — is like watching someone you love get f**ked by someone you hate. The big one is Suicide Squad. That shit broke me. That handed me my ass.”

He went on to share how everything fell apart for the movie: “Come right off Fury, right? I had the town in my hand — could’ve done anything, and I did do anything, and [I] go on this journey with [Suicide Squad]. And the same thing — authentic, truthful, let’s do all the rehearsal, let’s really get in each other’s souls. Let’s create this amazing, collaborative thing, right? And then Deadpool opened, right? And they never tested ‘Batman v. Superman,’ so they were expecting a different result, and then they got hammered by all the critics. Then it’s like, ‘Okay, we’re going to turn David Ayer’s dark, soulful movie into a f**king comedy now.’”

When previously talking about his original cut of the film, the director said: “All I know is my unseen film plays much better than the studio release. The interest in my cut being show seems real and organic. And Gunn told me it would have its time to be shared. He absolutely deserves to launch his DC universe without more drama about old projects. In a way I’m chained to this thing. I’m riding a tiger here and navigating this situation the best I can. Life is a very strange journey.”

Ayer’s next film is the Jason Statham action movie The Beekeeper.
